Please find below a fabulous post by Kate Walsh. I don’t ever remember meeting a sufferer who said that their Eating Disorder was not their fault. Eating Disorders and self-blame go hand in hand. But over the years I have learned one thing that self-blame is a very dangerous game and keeps us stuck in the vicious cycle of Eating Disorder. Self-blame is one of the worst forms of emotional abuse a person can ever go through. It amplifies our perceived inadequacies, worsens the cycle of eating disorder, and keeps us stuck in the past. I believe with sheer conviction that our eating disorder is not our fault. Recovery is possible, hope exists, and I believe in one thing that Eating Disorders can be beaten, all we need to do is have a self-belief and a desire to live a life free from the confines of the demon of eating disorder.
You, yourself, as much as anyone else in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection. – Buddha
